Today's task on Spark Coach is to identify ways in which I waste time during the day and to fill at least some of that wasted time with activity. Should be an interesting exercise - I am either running about madly getting things done
or lounging around
Nothing much in between those two points.
I realised a long time ago that the lounging needs to stop and am happy to find myself focused on keeping myself moving during the day in a more consistent way than I do now

You know since I got my fitbit flex a week ago, I set a goal of steps with it everyday. What I do is at every commercial when I am watching TV I will walk around the room and get more steps. Do you know I am getting about 2500 more steps a day just doing that?! Or on the computer, I set a time to get up and do the same! I know I sit too much, so that has changed!

I waste time with teve and internet - after reading "The winter of our disconnect" by Susan Maushart I have realy highlighted my internet dependancy... and decided to spend some of that leisure time playing the piano. Mausharts son becam a really good saxophone player during their disconnectin, I don´t care where my playing takes me but I can as well be distracted by playing as by playing computergames...

Yes, I read that too. It makes a lot of sense. But to each his own.
Right now, I am just beginning to sleep more than 5 or 6 hours a night. Sleep deprivation has followed me for a long, long time. And that could have been part of my weight problem. But with hubby's cancer of the past 6 years and his passing back in March, my life is just beginning again.
With doing the South Beach Diet again, (hopefully for a long, long time), I'll be much healthier. So now I am sleeping about 9 to 10 hours and my weight is beginning to drop. They say if you don't get the sleep you need you will, like, sabotage your weight loss.
But I totally hear where you are coming from. Getting up and getting the day started is important as well. And using the time wisely to do more movement is very important.
Women, if they sit more than six hours a day have a greater risk, 37% more, of dying earlier. I certainly want to keep moving!
